The Meaning of Life in the Church

Saturday, April 29 from 9AM–12PM

Bethlehem College & Seminary is a “church based school.” We believe that church membership is so vital to spiritual life that it can’t be delayed until later in life. Come Saturday morning and hear Lewis Guest IV and Dr. Dieudonné Tamfu speak on the subject of meaningful church life. Both Lewis and Dieudonne are graduates of Bethlehem Seminary, and both serve as elders at Jubilee Community Church, one of Bethlehem’s church plants.

Everyone is welcome to come: students, parents, church members, non-members, elders and other community members.

9–9:45AM Lewis Guest: “What is Meaningful Eldership?”
10–10:45AM Dieudonné Tamfu: “What is Meaningful Church Membership?”
11–11:45AM Q/A Discussion

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required.
